Where do complaints come from?
A complaint can come from anyone. It could be true or not. Every complaint is taken seriously. If your complaint is related to becoming ill, please contact the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s 24-hour, 7 days a week disease reporting line at 1-800-821-5821. If your complaint is related to another concern, please leave a message on the Food Service Inspections Hotline or call the Health Inspection Program at 207-287-5671.
